The aim of the project is to create a relationship between school and enterprise, in other words it brings enterprise into the school.
The objectives of this project are, firstly, to establish the InternPrize concept as foundation for a studio school concept. Moreover, to establish the practice of the project in schools at a local level and to set the foundation for exploration of InternPrize practice through mobility’s for apprenticeships overseas for a project oriented mobility experience.
At a school education level the aim is to give to the students a competitive spirit by showing them that competences and skills bring the opportunity and that those self-taught extracurricular skills when they acquired, are valuable. The project, also, generates opportunities to those students who are more oriented towards the practical and less to didactic formal education and they possibly face learning difficulties.
